Our mission is to be the most affordable, innovative and accessible education available.

A private, not for profit, virtual, student centric, technology focused educational opportunity.

Why do we need another college?

KTU is meant to fill the gap in education accessibility and those needing an education. These gaps exist for various reasons, many created by traditional institutions and KTU addresses these in novel ways.

We were founded in 2020 and as a new institution we plan to offer certificates, diplomas and Associate Science degrees soon. We anticipate offering Bachelor Degrees within the next two or three years.


Information Technology Program

We measure the student's knowledge of a subject rather than their time spent in a room.

KTU Certificates

KTU offers specialized certificate programs thaty can be used towards a KTU degree or enhance an existing undergraduate degree.

Associate Degree

KTU courses are intended to build towards an Associate Degree. KTU Certificates are tracks of courses that also satisfy some of the credits required of our Associate program.

Competency Based Education

We measure the student's knowledge of a subject rather than their time spent in a room.

Based On Industry Recognized Certifications

Using existing industry recognized exams gives students more than a course with each class.

We're Inclusive Not Exclusive

Other schools are proud of how many applicants they reject. We're proud of how many of their rejected graduate from KTU.*

We Cut Out The BS In Education BSes

If "college isn't for everyone" or "you just can't do it" sounds like something you've heard about getting a degree, then KTU is designed with you in mind. We cut out the stuff that isn't relevant that more often serves as a distraction and we focus on the student.
We're a nonprofit so our goal is to help as many "college-rejects" graduate. We don't have shareholders to pay and we're tax exempt freeing that revenue for our mission.
KTU is your second, third or fourth chance college because we believe everyone should have the opportunity to complete an education

Technology Focus

KTU is a focused technology education institution.  Primarily because technology is in every field and access to tech education is lacking in Kentucky.  

Technology was also a practical choice as its the field our staff has experience in, as the university grows expect business, communication and more.
